About Me

I'm Jared Ford.

Growing up, I was always a creative kid and one of my outlets was writing. For whatever reason, I quit writing around age 19. Fast forward to August 21st, 2017 — my 26th birthday— I'm witnessing a total solar eclipse, deep into Oregon. The experience changed me. Inspired, I vowed to stop hiding from my passion and dove back in. This website is the result.

I don't want to be caged in, type-cast or defined into a set genre, so I wont. Expect to see me writing  across a wide spectrum of topics: Travel, Short Fiction, Poetry, Philosophy, Space, History, Digital Journalism, and more. My imagination is my most powerful tool and I will follow it wherever it goes, which is many a strange, far-off place. So strap in readers and hold on tight, because I have no idea where this train is going!

REVELRY

REVELRYBy: Jared Ford
rev•el•ry ˈrevəlrē noun
Lively and noisy festivities, especially when these involve drinking a large amount of alcohol. "Sounds of revelry issued into the night"
A better definition could scarcely be found Agreed every irritated neighbor around I awoke to the thunder that ended my slumber Who creates such a riot, I suffered to wonder The wild things are here And with them, comes fear
Fear of the roars, and thumps in the night Echoes of monsters who scream their delight How peculiar, how odd, why here? Why now? What stirs their heart to arouse such a howl? The wild things I hear As I slowly draw near
Their beastly attire, gleams ever brighter As the fire spins higher, their eyes do inspire They dance with such glee, their spirit carefree How enticing for me, this uncouth jubilee… The wild things I’ve seen Don’t appear all that mean
Into the light, I announced my arrival A dozen kind smiles, assured my survival They welcomed me in and I felt something ri…

Message: Unseen

Message: Unseen By: Jared Ford
He said: I love you man. I'm so glad we're friends.
I love you too brotha, wink face, I replied I'm waiting—Still waiting, How long must I abide? They're saying you're gone?? But... this talk isn't over, This can't be the end, this day in October
I have so much to say! No... Please... Just respond!

This should not be real, the pain that I feel. How can it be, that it's now only me? Where did you go? You were so quick to depart. I'm looking! I'm searching! I'm screaming your name! Damn it Marcus, I'm lost, no more hide and seek It's time to come out, I need my best friend This game I can't win, and the future looks bleak..
My brother — my kin.  We were born as strangers, yet chose to be family Is this not the most omnipotent bond? When blood claims the pot, still, the hearts all-in. Surely this endures out into the beyond Where pain is forgotten, in the realm of the fallen How's the view out ther…

I AM A FUCKHEAD

I've always been told I learn everything the hard way, and looking back on my life thus far, I couldn’t agree more.
I used to feel resentment about this aspect, imagining I was being picked on by some higher power, a bully with a magnifying glass on little Jared Ford. Ha!
Alas, I seem to have entered into a new phase . Whether that is because of changes I've been trying to implement, or just an inevitability of aging, I can't be sure, but I finally feel that I’m gaining the ability to recognize potential for growth within my mistakes. It’s taken 26 years, but maybe I know why this obstacle-ridden road has been my path — to teach others.
If I’m going to constantly stumble through life, the least I can do is try to shed light on a few metaphorical bridges I’ve traveled that were missing a plank or two, and hopefully, prevent you from stumbling yourself.
Now, I could tell stories about my many shortcomings for days on end, but I’d like to share a little story about one that happ…

Finding God - Free Will and The Multiverse

Finding God Free Will and The Multiverse
There is a rarely a night I fall asleep without having read every new Science article on Google News. For me, it's comparable to those countdown calendars you get for Christmas, but instead of fueling a sweet tooth with a nightly treat of chocolate, I get to fuel my curiosity. I can't get enough of it. Many of the concepts are too technical or advanced for me to fully grasp, but it sure doesn't stop me from trying.

There is one theory that has ensnared my imagination these days, one that has become omnipresent in my mind—the Theory of the Multiverse. If you aren't familiar, allow me to attempt a brief explanation.

Multiverse Theory has many variations but, at it's core, is the belief that our universe is but one universe among infinite universes, all existing simultaneously. All space, matter, and energy that has ever existed makes up these many universes.

Now for the time being, there is no way to test this theory and ther…

An American Slaughter

An American SlaughterIn memory of the Las Vegas Massacre victims By: Jared Ford


The darkness is thick today. 


The sensation of weight, drags my heart low within,
Doubt & confusion convert my mind into haze.
It will not relinquish, in these coming days,
As stories are told & pictures are shown.

While our joyfulness weakens, national unity deepens.
When an American dies, there is no divide.
Alone, their blood spills, but together, we bleed. 
Anger is here, but for now, we must grieve.
For our brothers and sisters, our lovers, our children,
These were our future, stolen & frozen.

Preserved in the past, let them not die in vain.
Remember this feeling, the heartbreak, the pain,
The anger that follows, supplying rage like a viper,
Let it permeate your thoughts, that cowardly sniper!
An American died! An American died! 

"We'll get those responsible, may they burn evermore!"
"How dare someone strike us? The U. S. of A!"

In the rising suns light, a chilling…
